My deepest condolences to the Flanagan Family. Jack was larger than life. I first met him in 1992 with Jimmy and Murphy's Law. he was the BOSS, the Man, El Hefe , before any of us could even begin to figure out the business Jack was already a master of it. He looked out for the talent and let a few people in the circle. I was fortunate to be let in. As shows would come and go Jack was always there running his business and saving Jimmy from peril at any given moment which was hand in hand. As time passed he was at the helm of Clutch a newer band from MD. He knew that they too were special and with his vision and their talent they still cannot be topped. He also took it upon himself to manage The Mighty GWAR. What else can be said about that. Nothing. He tuned into their greatness and played them all over the world, and the GREAT GREAT Ronnie Spector The Queen of the spun sugar beehive. What a beautiful combination they made. Jack made his mark all over the world with his larger than life personality and smile. Jack, when it comes time for me to go to the big show upstairs please put me on the list brother. I will miss you my friend
